LAFAYETTE — Melissa Camilletti said the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team works on free throws all the time in practice. The shots from the charity strip may be uncontested, but are not always a given. The Bulldogs showed hard work pays off Friday in the second round of the 4A state playoffs against Thompson Valley, as they went 30 for 35 from the free throw line, including a 10 for 10 run to start the fourth quarter, en route to a 65-41 victory. “When both teams got in foul trouble, we finished and they didn’t,” said Melissa, an MCHS senior. “Our free throws were crucial and we stepped up and made them when we needed them.”
